Oracle Planning Modules – Making Your Planning Processes Flexible, Fast and Easy!

Oracle Planning Modules - Making Your Planning Processes Flexible, Fast and Easy! Historically, in an on-prem world, you could not implement a planning module in any reasonable amount of time. Back then, 2, 3, 4 or five months was the norm. And, if you wanted to change, update or replace a function, you feared the possibility of breaking something that would require a high priced consultant to come in and fix the mess. But Oracle Cloud EPM Planning Modules saved the day! The Cloud actually flipped the technology on its head and said “Oh, you want to do planning inside of financials? Well, decide what aspect you want to use and simply  turn that aspect on.” These planning modules include pre-configured, best-in-breed modules – Financial Statement Planning, Workforce Planning, Capital Asset Planning, Project Financial Planning, and Strategic Modeling that provide flexibility and save time. In this session, we will break down each pre-configured framework, the swift implementation time, and pre-built content for modules. Don’t miss out on learning how to make the most of your planning processes. REGISTER NOW

Be Prepared When Business Uncertainty Hits (and it will) with Oracle Scenario Modeling

Be Prepared When Business Uncertainty Hits (and it will) with Oracle Scenario Modeling The concept of scenario modeling has been around for years. However, it didn't really come into the spotlight until the pandemic hit. If you’ve ever wondered why some companies retracted their guidance last year and replaced it with nothing – it's because they only had one set of numbers. They weren't planning for “What if the world goes haywire?” Businesses that develop best-case, worst-case, and likely-case scenarios within the financial constraints of their organization are adopting scenario modeling to steer decisions. It's more important than ever to have your balance sheet at hand. Scenario modeling allows for comprehensive high-level forecasting of financial statements and supports long range planning requirements. Avoiding significant losses and coming out ahead of the competition should always be the focus. In this session, we discussed the benefits of creating well-rounded potential outcomes as they pertain to economic uncertainty, how to determine which KPIs are associated with the most probable outcomes, and the importance of being able to pivot business plans using collected data and analytics. Don’t wait any longer. Take the first step in learning how to rule the world with scenario modeling…

It’s the New Year, Do You Have a Solid Strategic Plan in Place?

It’s the New Year, Do You Have a Solid Strategic Plan in Place? Are you keeping up with change? Both Internal (organizational) as well as external (industry)? What’s your strategy? As we think strategically, it’s paramount to have an idea about where we are going. The key to a successful business strategy is “big picture thinking”. But there's more to it! It’s getting executive involvement and buy-in. It’s figuring out the appropriate tools you should buy and which ones you should retire. It's getting agreement on key priorities and the necessary resources to support them. If you're not thinking strategically,  you're going to be running without a destination. Now is the time to come up with a plan that doesn't encourage siloed solutions. A plan that doesn't enforce “firefighting”. You want a plan that will control the narrative and put a framework for strategy in place so that you can kick off 2022 with a really great roadmap so that you can make 2022, and the next three years, the best they can possibly be.

Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud End User Experience

Oracle Account Reconciliation Cloud End User Experience The number one data related delay in the entire close process is data validation. Most organizations would say that an enormous amount of their close time is spent validating data. What product are you using to reconcile accounts? Are you using Oracle Cloud EPM?  Excel? Blackline? Or the power of humans?  Literally seeing if this number equals that number. You might think you're really good at it! I mean, cavemen were asking at a point in time, “Does this rock look like that rock?” But truthfully, this is not a good use of our higher-level thinking. This is something that today’s robots are really good at and we should let the robots do it! We don't want to be slowing down our process. And quite frankly, humans don't want to do it either. Nobody feels really smart at the end of the day when thinking, “Yeah...I validated all of that stuff.” Please don't go down this path! You really want to be in a situation of letting robots go figure out your data and your reconciliation. Watch this session recording to discover how Oracle Cloud EPM Account Reconciliation addresses the global reconciliation process…
